App Heroes - Кикстартер дня: для Tiny Games весь мир – игровая площадка

March 27th - via: slon.ru
На Kickstarter началась кампания по сбору средств на приложение Tiny Games. Это сборник из сотен простых игр, в которые можно сыграть с друзьями в реальной жизни. Авторы проекта – небольшая британская студия Hide&Seek, специализирующаяся на проектировании игровых ситуаций в городской среде. Прошлым летом в рамках летнего фестиваля искусств они разместили по всему Лондону наклейки-рекомендации с 99 видами быстрых и несложных игр, способных скрасить скучную минуту или две. Акция пользовалась успехом, и теперь создатели хотят запихнуть рекомендации в ваш планшет или смартфон – и просят на это 25 тысяч фунтов. (Read More)

All the world's a playground: Tiny Games heads to Kickstarter

March 22nd - via: eurogamer.net
Game designers - particularly, you could argue, those who are eyeing up Kickstarter - have always been interested in the money in your pocket, but there's a moment towards the end of the pitch video for Tiny Games when the precise nature of that interest gets a little weird.
